Director and Founder
Pomegranate Global
NAFSA Senior Fellow

After 25 years of professional experience—spanning capacity building, social innovation, and international education—as well as roles as international director and pro vice-chancellor international at three Australian universities, Ailsa Lamont founded Pomegranate Global in 2016 to guide the education sector to take action on climate change.

She has since trained with The Climate Reality Project, former U.S. Vice President Al Gore’s foundation to catalyse a global solution to the climate crisis. In 2019, Lamont cofounded Climate Action Network for International Educators (CANIE), a grassroots initiative by international education practitioners who see the need and the opportunity to step up and take greater action on climate.
